Most businesses don’t see the value in applying for a patent and many think that R&D tax credits aren’t relevant to them. But in our experience all types of businesses innovate, all of the time.
Large or small – there’s an R&D tax solution for your company. Deciding which type of R&D tax relief to use is largely dependent on the size of your business. If you are classed as a small or medium sized enterprise then SME R&D tax credits are the best place to start, if you are a larger company then the RDEC scheme is probably the better option.
As a new business you are probably creating new products and services to meet unmet demand, filling a gap in the market, or approaching things from a fresh perspective. This could well result in R&D activities and IP that can be commercialised.
As your business grows there are scale up challenges that require you to innovate, and often leading to R&D activities and resulting IP.
In today’s world you may need to innovate just to stand still, technology provides new opportunities, you need to respond to the market or drive efficiencies to cut costs.
As you exit you should be recognise the value of your business through an R&D and IP lens.

Identifying exactly what qualifies as R&D is not easy. We’d claimed ourselves twice before, but the experts almost doubled the value of what we received.

…we were able to “relax”, knowing their Analyst’s technical knowledge gave us the best chance for successful IPO patent grant…
Clive Paul | Managing Director, TES Ltd
My words of advice would be; you may think that only scientific or manufacturing type companies qualify for R&D tax credits but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Martyn Jupp | CEO, Veriserv Ltd
